5.1.00 enhancements

The PATROL for Microsoft Windows Servers version 5.1.00 product contains the following enhancements:

The 5.1.00 version of Microsoft Hyper-V KM has been completely redesigned. With the 5.1.00 release, Microsoft Hyper-V KM provides remote monitoring of Clustered Hyper-V environments. There is no need to install the monitoring PATROL Agent on the computer that you want to monitor. You can monitor your setup remotely without impacting the health of your computer. For a list of supported resources and prerequisites, see System requirements and Component-specific requirements.

Introduced new KM to support remote monitoring of Hyper-V environments

  • Simplified UI to remotely monitor Hyper-V environment
  • A single collector process (HyperVMon.exe)
  • Monitoring of multiple Hyper-V Servers from a single PATROL Agent
  • Option to filter virtual machines
  • Detailed monitoring of Hyper-V hosts and virtual machines

Remote monitoring of Hyper-V Servers

PATROL for Microsoft Hyper-V Server monitors and analyzes performance of a Hyper-V Server. With this release of the KM, Hyper-V environments can be monitored remotely from any server within domain or out of the domain. The KM provides option to monitor clustered Hyper-V as well as standalone Hyper-V host. The KM provides overall health of hosts and virtual machines, that includes CPU, memory, network, and disk performance.

Using this KM, you can monitor the following Hyper-V components:

  • Hyper-V Cluster, its nodes and virtual machines
  • Memory utilization and processor utilization of hosts and virtual machines
  • Statistics of the virtual switch and virtual network adapters
  • Statistics of root partition
  • Activities of the disks attached to the IDE controller
  • All the virtual hard disk attached to the virtual machines

Filter based on virtual machine name

The KM enables you to create filters to include or exclude virtual machines from monitoring based on their name. Regular expressions can be used to filter multiple virtual machines. For more information, see Configuring Microsoft Hyper-V monitor type.

Performance Scalability and Reliability

With the 5.1.00 version of the Microsoft Hyper-V KM, you can monitor up to 1000 virtual machines. For more information, see Performance Scalability and Reliability data.

Upgrade from earlier versions not supported 

PATROL for Microsoft Hyper-V has been redesigned to support remote monitoring of the Hyper-V environment. Upgrade from earlier versions of the KM is not supported.

    What does the below statement mean? Does this mean we need to write new KM policies? Or does this mean we need to uninstall the old KM version from the agent host before deploying the new KM?

    Hi Michael,

    In Microsoft Windows Servers 5.0.00 solution, we had local monitoring of the Hyper-V. This feature is still available in 5.1.00 version. The local Hyper-v policies will work with 5.1.00 version.

    With 5.1.00 we have introduced remote monitoring of Hyper-V. You can use the new monitor profile, that is, "Microsoft Hyper-V" to monitor Hyper-V remotely. You need to create a new policy for this monitoring.


    Thanks,
    Shweta
